CS371p Fall 2021 Week 5: Andrew Li

  1. What did you do this past week?
    This week, I was mainly working on projects for another class, so I have not started on the voting project yet. In fact, I do not have a partner yet (whoever is reading this, if you do not have a partner yet, I would be happy to team up).
  2. What’s in your way?
    Right now, I just got through two projects for other classes, so a lot of hard work is over. I plan to get started on the Voting project this week, now that my other classes have started to let up.
  3. What will you do next week?
    Next week, I will start the voting project, and I will try to finish before Monday if possible, so I don’t have to worry about it the day it is due.
  4. If you read it, what did you think of the Paper #5: Pair Programming?
    I read the paper, and I agree that pair programming increases productivity a lot. In previous classes, I have had to work in a pair before, and I think that I have been able to save a lot of time and headache debugging my code with somebody else helping me.
  5. What was your experience of vector, list, and deque, and invalidation? (this question will vary, week to week)
    I have had quite a bit of experience with the data structures mentioned above, specifically from a previous class that I took with professor Downing.
  6. What made you happy this week?
    This week, my roommates and I made Carne Asada, which was fun, and tasted great! We don’t get to spend much time together, as we are all busy with school, so it was nice to hang out together and cook for a while.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
    My pick of the week is if you don’t know what to do, instead of trying things until it works, look up the source documentation. I was working on a project for another class, and I found so many answers to what I was trying to do just by looking at the documentation.
